A novel of mind-bending imagination and scope from the author of Ghostwritten and Utopia Avenue


Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies . . .

Six interlocking lives - one amazing adventure. In a narrative that circles the globe and reaches from the 19th century to a post-apocalyptic future, Cloud Atlas erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of humanity's will to power, and where it will lead us.

*Please note that the end of p. 39 and p. 40 are intentionally blank*
